ARREST or COLOXEX KEITH, OF NOETH CAROLINA.
From the Charlotte Democrat we learn that Cole?
ne! Keitb, who, during the war, executed thirteen
persons in the Laurel Valley in Western North
Carolina, has been arrested by order of General
Canby and conveyed to Charleston for trial. The
persons executed were "raiders"' who claimed to
be Union men.
A NEW GBADE OF COTTON.-Those who deal in
the staple are familiar with the different grades of
ordinary, middling, and strict middling, and can
generally tell the quality at a glance; but there
are sometimes new grades px .seated that puzzel
even the cotton connoisseurs. Among the bales re?
ceived yesterday at Accommodation Wharf were
several consigned to Messrs. Kendall & Dockory,
and branded 4'None Such." Some desire was mani?
fested to learn the exact standard of this new
brand, bat the bales remained unsampled, and tbe
curious were compelled to depart unsatisfied.
MASONIC ELECTION.-At the annual communica?
tion of Orange Lodge No. 14, A. F. M., held at
Masonio Hall, December 9th, 5867, the following

CAROO FOB HAVRE.-There was cleared from tho
Custom Bouse here, on Monday last, by Mr. Wm.
Bosch, the brig Shannon for Havre, being tho first
cargo for the French market which has left this
port this season, and consisted of 5 bags Sea
Island, 1103 bales Upland Cotton, aud 25 tierces
B.oe. The last article is the first shipment of the
Cajrolina grain tl a French port, worthy of notice,
made since the war. The trade from this point to
Havre was formerly very large, but has been some?
what interfered with by cotton from other parts of
the world; but we hope that this shipment is the
revival of an old businoso that may largely in?
crease and be mutually advantageous.
THU CHARLOTTE NEWS,-This spicy shoot, pub?
lished in the flourishing little city of Charlotta,

Charlotte News an excellent advertising medium
in which to extend their acquaintance in the
section of country in which it circulates.

CHARLESTON HOOK ANO LADDER COMPANY No. 2.
-The steamer Manhattan brought yesterday as a
portion of its freight a new Hook and Ladder Truck
lor the Charleston Fire Company of this city, and,
in accordance with a notice given in the papers, the
company, under the command of their chief, were
promptly on board to receive their new pet The
Hook and Ladder No. 1, tendered their now breth?
ren an escort, which was cordially acc.-pted, and
the two companies passed through the principal
streets, each drawing the others truck; No. 1 un?
der charge of their foreman, Mr. Jos, Hilton, be?
ing in the van. Although Hayue-street was not in
their direct route, tho office of THE DAILY NEWS
was honored by a passing glimpse at the parade,
and the unusual sound of a gong caused the win?
dows of our printing office to be more attractive
tbanthe cases. After escorting No. 2 to their
house in Wentworth-street, and placing the truck
in proper position, No. 1 performed the same duty
for their own machine, and the two oompanies re?
paired to the hall of the Charleston No. 2, whore
a bountiful collation had been spread, and where
the efficiency of the new truch was pledged in
The two trucks are very similar ia size and ap?
pearance, althoash the one is new and unused,
while the other is aattle-scarred and flre-3tained.
They were built by tho same maker, Mr. C. E.
Harishcrc, of Not? York, No 2 having six ladders,
from ten to forty-two feet in length, twelve short
hooks, ten long hooks, and six medium sized, ono

THE SUNNY SOUTH.-The antral of a large num?
ber of passengers from the North, on Sunday, by
the "James Adgei"-many of them en route to
Florida an 1 other localities in the South, suggests
a few thoughts on tho mildness of our climate
during the Winter months. The last two or three
nights have been a little fresh, but during th9 day
tho weather baa been delightful, ciear, bright,
bracing, yet not disagreeably cold. A little exer?
cise, a "constitutional," or at?l better a dose of
old-fashioned healthy work, 60on accelerates tho
course of the arterial fluid, and brings the glow cf
health to tho tender cheek of youth. Rosy-finger?
ed morn imprints a kiss 0:1-bah, wo are getting
sentimental. This won't do. We only meant to
say that the weather is delightful, tho aun pleas?
ant, the sky clear, the air ooft and delicii.ua, the
"poppinao"-(opoponax, did you say, Miss Pcechcr?
Perhaps so-wo will discuss that nice point ia
floral etymology nt another time)-the roppinac
cut in full and odoriferous bloom. The IOBCS and
the violets shed their delicate perfume, blonded on
:h3 air with the fragrance of the hyacinth and the
chryeanthern. i he rich, golden fruit of the
orange troo, luxuriously pendant from tho back?
ground ol deep green ioiiage, affords a ploture the
oyo oin never weary of beholding.
Of the health of the city v;o spoke yesterday.
Sufficient here to say that the doctors are nearly
all exempt irom paying any income tax; tho ma?
jority of them are riding S'ianks' mare. Tho
apothecaries are dead broke, the city is BO distress?
ingly her.lthy. Now is the time for strangers to
visit us. Cold and icy Winter reigns beyond ua,
while boro wo enjoy the balmy and bracing braezes
of a mild Autumn. Chill November's surly blast
pissed us unscathed. In fact, ocr November was
not chill, and hi, blasts were not surly; and, from
present appearances, December also 6eoms in?
clined to deal gently with us, and make the fur
coat ard cape of old Santa Claus only traditionally
Fmar.cially and oomme.-oially, the season is en?
veioped in unusual gloom. But witn ShakEpeaxe
we may say, "Now ia the Winter of our discon*
tent made glorious Summer" to the pilgrims from
distant Northern e?mes,
COEONES'S INQUEST.-A negro child was found
dead yesterday under circumstances seeming o
warrant a Coroner's inquest. \Vo wcrtrunablo to
obtain particulars, boyond tho tact that the Jury
returned a verdict, that tho child had como to its
death through carelessness of tho mother, and for
want ot medical attention.
Tnn CUBI?TMAS TBEE at Commins' Hall ia at?
tracting consideraba? attention in tho oity. The
young foiks all over the city aro on tho qui vive,
anxious to sso 'Christkindel," and delighted to
have Christmas come before its time. Ia addition
to all (he other attractions, already unnounood, we
aro glad to learn that tho Post Baud, under tho
able leadership of Mr. Thomas Weldon, will play
at the hall every day during tho exhibition. Tli?3
in itself will be a great inducement to many to
visit the place.
Tnn MEW GEBSIAN LUTHERAN CHUECH.-Wo
called attention a few days ago to the progress of
this work, and it ufrords us pleasure now to an?
nounce that th3 corner stono of the Church will
be laid on the 28th instant, with appropriate core
Ibis chur:h, when finished, will bo the largest
and handsomer., and its steeplo the highest cf any
iu the city. A v< ry neatly exocuted design of tho
front elevation of the building, drawn by Mr.
William Walker, of thi3 city, is now to be seen at
the old church, cornor Hasel and Anson streets.
The building will cover in depth about 155 feet,
and iu width 75 feet. Height of ceiling C5 feet,
height of steeple 235 feet (St. Michael's being om\>
187 feet). The galleries will be extending on
North and South 6ides and on East end. Capacity
about 2500. Tho architec uio is Gothic, in some
respects resembling tho Cathedral, though it will
be brick, whilo the latter waa built of brown stone.
The plan is a composite of tho old German and
Norman-Gothic architecture of the middle ages
plain, yet grar.d in its simplicity.
Tho probable cost of tho building, wo learn, ia
estimated at about SCO.O00. Wo congratulato our
German fellow-citizens on the prospect of getting
eo fine a house of worship, and sincerely hope they
may not be delayed by any unusual or unforeseen
difficulty in the prosecution of their pious purpose.
GENEBAI. JAIL DELIVERY.-At h alf-past 7 A. lt
yesterday, about thirty prisoners confined in tho
jail were turned into the yard for thc purpose of
emptying thoir slops. Whilo thero, somo of the
prisoners managed to steal an axe from the wood?
house, and rushing at the gato, succeeded in
forcing the lock and making their escape before
Mr. Hazeltine, tho jailor, who was prosont, could
interfere. As soon as practical, ho closed the gate
and securod the yard, but ono white and thirty
colored prisoners made their escape. The police?
man who was on guard outside saw the escape,
but was able to arrest only one of the party, as,
with the exception of his club, bo was unarmed
one of tho prisoners making a blow with an axe,
whioh, fortunately, prov.d harmless. Information
of the escape was at once given to tho police au?
thorities, and the detective force were mounted
and sent in search of the prisoners, but to a
late hour last night only two arrests had been
made. Tho gate from whioh the prisoners escaped
waa fastenod by a padlock alone, though it had
beon previously secured by an ospagnielette. Fre?
quent applications have been made by tho jailor,
Mr. Hazeltine, to tho Commissioners to have the
gate secured by a stronger and more serviceable
lock, but from want of funds this was not dono.
Most of tho prisoners who made their escape were
confined for larceny, vagrancy, and similar oti'onoes,
Some of them had not been brought to trial, and a
few wore to bo sent to the State penitentiary at an
?arly day. The following aro the names of the

THE PIONEER CO-OPERATION SCOTETX or CHARLES?
TON.-This Society, the first of its kind in thia oity,
ia now fully organizod, and but tor some unavoid?
able causes of delay, would have commenced ope?
rations with tho new year. It numbera nearly
sixty mesabere, and ha3 an amount of m one v in
the treasury sufficient to justify the opening of
a store immediately. Tho drst of January was the
date fixed for thc Btart, but it has been found im?
possible to secure possession of the store before
the first of february, at which time they will,
without fail, establish a cooperativo grocery store,
in Market-street, near Meeting. A: thoir last
meeting, W. J. Gayor, Esq., was elcctod Solicitor
of the Society, and .was authorized tc present a
petition for a charter to Chancellor Johnson cn his
return to this city. The Pioneer Society is com?
posed principally of mechanics, tho working men
of the community, and tho bone and B?ECW of the
country. They have determined to make the ex?
periment, and have gone to work with a rssolution
that leaves liUlo doubt of their ultimate success.
These societies havo beou conducted in Eu'o^e
with great satisfaction lo tho members, and, in
many instaacos, tue mjney invosted has paid a
handsomo dividend. TutNEWS has steadily ad?
vocated the lormation of smilor associationo in
Luis city, believing them, if properly managed, to
be of irreut assistance to these wno aro dependent
on their daiiy exertions for a support. The Pio?
neer, as its neme indicates, is the first that has de?
termined to test the success of tho enterprise. So
rar, they bare surpassed their own anti;?pations,
and if thc store ia conducted and supported with
ihe seme earnestness hitherto exhibited, there
can be no doubt as to the suocesstul result of the
THE MEDICAL COLLEGE.-Tho lectures at this
institution, now in progress, are not public; but
trusting upon our usual good luck, and the cour?
tesy wo havo always met at the hands of the gen?
tlemen of thc Faculty, we dropped in yesterday
morning, betwoen 10 and ll o'ebek-Prof. Shep?
ard's hour. We wont to tho chemical lecture
room, and there saw soated upon the benches
about sixty young gentlemen, whoso appearanoo,
figure, form, faoo and dress-all marked thom,
eveu to the most oasual observer, as medioal stu?
dents. What it ia precisely that marks tho species
we have never been able to determine satisfacto?
rily; but certain it is that some je ne sais quoi of
dress or bearing always distinguishes the y jung
aspirant for medical honors; and in New York or
Philadelphia we could always distinguish the South?
ern medical student from the Yorker, tho Yankee,
the Canadian and the Blue Nose. Dr. Shepard
was lecturing to a very attentive class-many of
the students diligently engaged In taking notes.
The Professor was expatiating on the mysteries ol'
electricity, illustrating his remarks at every step
with experiments-grinding the subtle fluid off his
machine in quantities to suit whatever point ho
wished to elucidate. Dr. S. is an old ohemist, and
an experienced and successful teacher. Familiar
with the mysteries of nature through many sci?
ences, he ia uover at a loss fer suitable and happy
"Inductive Electrioitj" being too abetrusa a 3ub
jeot to fathom witl?n half an hour, wo only gave
it attention with one cranial hemisphere, tho other
directing our eyes around the i com and taking men?
tal notes. The general arrangement of thc lecture
ro:m and laboratory has undergone many changes,
the inicoralogical cabinet now being in the front
room, the specimens all classified and neatly label?
led. This colodi?n, tho Profeasor informed us,
he designs enlarging considerably nest Wintor. A
new chart of "Elements. ' embracing tho latest
discoveries, atttuc ted our attontic-n, also a chart
giving the cental metrical tables.
Professor Shepard visited Europe during the
past Summer, and brought with him, on his re?
turn, all the latest improvements in chemical and
philosophical (?) apparatus. Many of these In?
struments came in the "Gauss''-the boxe i that
contained thom aro still in tho hall, marked "Glas"
(with one 8) and "Vorciehiig." Wo looked over
thc apparatus, but as wo are net deep ia org.-.nlc
ohemistry we could hardly appreciate thc delicacy
of many cf these instruments. Among tliGm we
saw a comh'JS.ion apparatus fer tho elementary
iicaiytis cf orgau.c eubjtances. This is vciy com?
plete; ?Iso a volumetric apparatus. Next the in?

A MARVEL 1-In the November number of a
monthly publication, entitled " Tho Spirit of Mis- j
sions," purporting to be edited for the Board of
Missions of the Protestant Episcopal Church in
the United States of America, by the secretaries
aLd general agents of the two committeea, and of |
tho freedman's commission, we ?nd a communica?
tion, under the caption of "Signs of Promise,"
touching tho improvement among tho colored peo?
ple of tho South :
As a single illustration of ?hat they are capable
of in the higher branches of learning, we may
mention the case of a native African in South Caro?
lina, who is a thoroughly educated man, and a
distinguished linguist; who converses fluently in
teu diff?rent languages, and who is equally con?
versant in tho Greek Testament and Koran. This
man is now laboring as a field band, while he gives
bia earnings to teaching his fellow-iabororB. And
it is said, it his food could be furnished him, ho
would earnestly devote his whole time to the
education of some oighty children in his immediate
vicinity. This statement is made on the authority
of Brevet Major-General R. K. Scott, of the Freed?
